A Postcard from Como Shambhala Estate, Bali


Como Shambhala Estate Overview

One of may all time favourite destinations is Ubud in Bali.  Despite it quickly becoming a busy touristy hub, (damn the success of Eat, Pray, Love), it still manages to calm and nourish my soul.


COMO Shambhala Estate is located near Ubud.  The luxury resort and wellness retreat is next the River Ayung, where it boasts its own sacred spring revered by locals for its healing properties, while activities make exceptional use of the great outdoors.
